de Rekeneire N, Rooks RN, Simonsick EM, Shorr RI, Kuller LH, Schwartz AV, Harris TB: Racial differences in glycemic control in a well-functioning older diabetic population: findings from the Health, Aging and Body Composition study. Diabetes Care 26:1986–1992, 2003

In the n row of Tables 1 and 2 of the above-listed article, the authors provided the correct number of diabetic individuals but incorrect percentages. The data should read: black women 154 (70.6%), white women 64 (29.4%), black men 120 (48%), and white men 130 (52%).

In the results section, the fourth sentence of the first paragraph should read: “More men (53.4%) than women (46.6%) had diabetes, and the level of control among all diabetic individuals in the study was poor (73.7% with HbA1c ≥7%, regardless of race).”
